Bellator CEO, Bjorn Rebney reveals Eddie Alvarez only has 5 months left on his contract
“We’re talking to him; we’ll see what happens. We may cut a deal with Ed. We may not cut a deal with Ed. We’ve got about another five months left on our current relationship with Ed and another fight, so we may do
another fight with Ed. There’s a lot of different alternatives. … Right now our eye is on the ball with doing one more fight with Ed, but you never really know in a contractual situation like this.”
The UFC recently signed Bellator’s middleweight champion, Hector Lombard to a lucrative multi-fight contract and the Cuban native will headline the UFC on FOX 4 card later this year. Could they do a similar thing with Alvarez or even sign him up to Strikeforce where current champion, Gilbert Melenedez is desperate for a new challenge?
